1 musician, 1 listener – 2 metres apart.
The 1:1 CONCERTS© defy the corona crisis, create powerful artistic spaces and raise solidarity donations supporting musicians in distress.
Cultural life has almost come to a complete standstill as it has vanished behind digital screens. More than ever, people are in need of genuine personal contact and a commonly and directly shared musical experience, yet the current limitations are likely to stay with us for a long time. With 1:1 CONCERTS© we have now created an opportunity for an authentic concert experience that takes into account all of the current Covid-19 restrictions.
A 1:1 CONCERTS© features a 10 min. non-verbal 1-to-1-encounter between a listener and a musician. The opening eye contact and ensuing mutual gaze is the impulse for a very personal concert where both sides experience an unprecedented intensity allowing proximity from a distance. The concert attendees do not know who is going to play. Whether they hear a jazz saxophone, a double bass or a baroque flute will come as a surprise. Moreover, the concept explores extraordinary concert venues – concerts can take you to an art gallery, a qiuet backyard, an empty factory hall or an allotment garden. Spaces and venues are provided by private hosts.
